MINING should not be the first thing on every Bougainvilleans mind, Me’ekamui spokesman Philip Takaung said.
Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony of the Paruparu Jaba road the Me’ekamui vice president said the environment should be the first thing people should be mindful about.
“We mustn’t let money lure us into disaster and damage our natural habitat destroying the eco system and we be evacuated somewhere to live,” Mr Takaung said.
